What is Expanded Function Dental Auxillary?

New Hampshire passed legislation and regulations to establish a new dental workforce provider: Expanded Function Dental Auxiliary (EFDA).  An EFDA, already used in 30 states, provides assistance and additional efficiencies at dental practices and public health clinics.

The EFDA certification qualifies certified dental assistants and hygienists to place, contour, and adjust the materials used in restorative procedures, following the removal of decay by the dentist. After completing NHTI’s 270-hour training program, which includes 120 hours of clinical training with a sponsoring dentist, EFDA candidates must register with the N.H. Board of Dental Examiners. The candidate must work under the direct supervision of a licensed New Hampshire dentist and complete the required annual continuing education coursework.
